At A Mighty Change of Heart, our core program currently focuses on providing personalized duffle bags to children entering the foster system. When a child reaches their new foster home they are often sad and confused and need to know someone still cares about them. To add to this feeling of distress, they typically take very little with them in terms of possessions. This is where A Mighty Change of Heart comes in. Our team has the child’s first name embroidered on a brand new duffle bag that will go with them where ever life may take them. The bag is then filled to order with new clothes, shoes, hygiene items, toys, books, and more. In this effort our goal is to provide the child with something they can truly call their own at a time when everything else in life may be borrowed or temporary, and to feel that someone cares about them.
A foster parent or kindred parent can simply visit our website, fill out a short order form with necessary information such as gender, age, and sizes, and our team will take it from there!
In our first full year (2017) we were able to hand deliver over 1,000 bags!
